The composer writes: "In June 2010 cantor Werner Jankowski celebrated his silver jubilee as church musician in the Hohenschönhausen district of Berlin. This 'liedpartita' from the setting of Psalm 92: 'It is a good thing' was my gift to him. During his time as cantor he performed many of my compositions, and this work is dedicated to him in gratitude."

Lothar Graap (b. 1933) is a German composer and church musician. Educated at the conservatory in Görlitz, his primary teachers were Eberhard Wenzel and Hans Schneider. He also studied with Helmut Bornefeld and Siegfred Reda. In 1954 he began a career as a professional church musician in Niemegk, and he pursued this work at several positions until his retirement in 1998 from Cottbus, where he had been cantor at the Klosterkirche. By the time of his retirement, he had performed and directed more than 1000 vespers services and concerts in Cottbus. Graap has composed more than 700 compositions in many forms, with a particular focus on organ and choral music.
